The Cancer Module has five units, each of which builds upon the others that came before it. The goal of each unit is to answer a key question about cancer, and what this means for our health.

Unit 1: What is cancer and why should we care?

Unit 2: What does it mean to be a ‘normal’ cell?

Unit 3: How does a normal cell become cancerous?

Unit 4: How does cancer make us sick?

Unit 5: How do we treat cancer?
